Canada still has a blasphemy law

The IHEU (International Humanist & Ethical Union) of which Humanist-Canada is a voting member, will begin its worldwide campaign against blasphemy laws tomorrow morning. Yes, of course, we are part of it. Ireland, Canada and New-Zealand will have, sooner or later, to come clean on this subject. Western blasphemy laws are currently been used by theocracies to justify the unjustifiable such as the torture and/or execution of people for what they think and say.
